A prop Roman sword used in the epic award winning film 'Gladiator' starring: Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix, Connie Nielsen, Oliver Reed & Richard Harris.

This prop sword (Gladius) was used by a Roman cavalry soldier in the battle with the barbarians knows as the 'Battle of Germania'. The cavalry swords are very similar to the infantry ones except they have a longer blade.

The sword blade & hilt is made from hard rubber with a metal armature in the middle for stability and rigidity, the armature runs through to the guard & grip, the guard features the distinctive lettering 'SPQR' around the edge, pommel has a floral decoration on the end.

As you will see in the pictures the blade shows multiple cuts from other swords, and the tip is missing which is typical for these battle used stunt swords, in the film the actors and stuntmen used these stunt swords in all the fighting scenes, and this sword has certainly seen some action.

The sword measures: 935mm x 82mm x 55mm (36.8" x 3.2" x 2.1").

This item comes supplied with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity).
